Consumer Affairs / Personal Finance newspaper columnists – a listing

I’m trying to put together a listing of journalists writing in the area of consumer affairs and personal finance. Here’s who I’ve come up with so far:

  • Conor Pope – Pricewatch, The Irish Times, Monday
  • Paul Cullen – The Irish Times
  • Gareth Naughton – The Sunday Tribune, Sunday
  • Charlie Weston – The Irish Independent, Tuesday
  • Tina Leonard – The Irish Independent (Smart Consumer), Thursday
  • Ben Dunne – The Irish Sun, Saturday
  • Dermott Jewell – The Irish News of the World, Sunday
  • Niall Brady & John Cradden – The Sunday Times, Sunday
  • Kathleen Barrington – The Sunday Business Post, Sunday
  • Louise McBride – The Sunday Independent, Sunday
  • Eddie Hobbs – The Irish Daily Star, Thursday
  • Emma Kennedy – Sunday Business Post, Sunday
  • Nick Web, The Sunday Independent, Sunday
  • Niamh Hennessy, The Irish Examiner
  • Colm Rapple, The Irish Examiner

Am I missing anyone else? I don’t believe there is anyone specifically covering this kind of thing in The Irish Examiner. Not sure about the Irish Daily Mail.

    Does PBH work for one of the newspapers Gary?

    Because I wouldn’t consider his TV work worthy of inclusion – http://www.valueireland.com/tag/buyer-beware/

    As for last nights dose of rubbish – apart lacking originality by repeating a story from last year (the calendars), why focus on the financial shenanigans of one individual who allegedly scammed one or two people, sure there are bigger financial fish to fry in Ireland at the moment?

    Oh, hang on – RTE doesn’t depend on an alleged scam artists for advertising revenue.

    And another thing – how does a “business to business” calendar advertising scam actually count as being “consumer” related?
